Gifts from your Traditional IRA
Current tax law now affords the opportunity for those who are at least 70 ½ or older to give up to $100K per year to Wabash through the IRA Charitable Rollover, also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD).
- QCDs will not be taxed to you as income, but they are not tax-deductible.
- QCDs may help satisfy in part or full your annual required minimum distributions (RMDs), depending on your gift amount.
- Contact your IRA Administrator to request a QCD to be sent directly to Wabash College and follow their procedures – supply them with Wabash’s Federal Tax ID, which is 35-0868202.
- For more information click on Charitable Rollover FAQs or IRA Charitable Rollover Instructions.
You can use a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) to make a gift to the College. DAF’s are giving vehicles established at a nonprofit organization, often through a local community foundation or by organizations such as Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and Vanguard Charitable. Donors can make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, allow assets to grow, and then recommend grants to qualified charities from the fund over time.
In order to direct a grant from your DAF to Wabash College, recommend that the sponsoring organization make a grant to Wabash College using their online portal or by contacting your advisor. If needed, the College’s Federal Tax ID is 35-0868202.
